Getting Software Update alerts as a stander user
Authored by: BiL Castine on Jan 30, '12 09:25:32AM
instead of (or in addition to) putting the script in the login items folder, I'd create a launched .plist that runs the script every time /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate is modified. that way the standard user wouldn't have to wait until next login to realize there is an update waiting. this is trivial to set up using Lingon.

This must be more than trivial, because I've tried to set this up in Lingon with no success. Please elaborate!
